Beautiful, sensitive, imperfect. Brilliant use of gastronomy to allegorize the adaptation of humans to sensory deprivation. A love story in an a rather plausible apocalyptic frame. At its essence it reminds of It's All About Love by Thomas Vinterberg.
So intense. So far, on of my favorite 'end of the world' stories. Eva Green and Ewan McGregor do a wonderful job here. lovelovelove!
" It's dark now. But they feel each others' breath. And they know all they need to know. They kiss. And they feel each others' tears on their cheeks. And if there had been anybody left to see them, then they would look like normal lovers, caressing each others' faces, bodies close together, eyes closed, oblivious to the world around them. Because that is how life goes on. Like that. "
Quando caímos da unidade, a única forma de entrarmos em contato com os outros passou a ser os 5 sentidos. É desesperador quando, no filme, eles começam a sumir, um a um. Primeiro, a catarse. Depois, a perda. Há a readaptação, mas e se TODOS os sentidos sumirem? Sem ver, sem ouvir, sem sentir, sem cheirar, sem degustar... Ainda não 'comprei' aquele final, mas, enfim... faz pensar. Nota: B+
Eine Liebeserklärung an die Sinne. Und an den Verlust. Und daran, dass Leben immer irgendwie weiter geht. Klingt kitschig, ist aber nur groß.
It’s obvious that “Perfect Sense” has some flaws and that, at the end, you are left with a “too sweet” taste in your mouth, but the film makes a very interesting study on humanity, on our ability to adapt and our determination to survive. What I miss is a better approach on the reasons that move us: why do we go on no matter what? Is this strength or just fear?
strong storyline: Love and loss of senses. terrible, nightmarish or/and beautiful ending! too bad it was not filmed and directed as it could have been. (very) interesting story for a banal film in the end.
The world slowly descends into chaos as a mysterious disease begins to rob people of their senses, beginning with smell, then taste, then finally hearing and sight. Amidst all this, two people fall in love. Beautifully filmed and surprisingly effective, perhaps even more emotionally acute than Steven Soderbergh's CONTAGION. A lyrical and poetic vision of the end of the world.
Just like Fernando Meirelles' Blindness, Perfect Sense never fully comes together. The narration from Eva Green seem perfunctory and the romance was not completely engaging.
